republicans directed their sharpest lines of inquiry towards defense secretary nominee chuck hagel. it's too bad most of it had nothing to do with the against defense department or what chuck hagel's record really says about what he might do with the defense department or really what chuck hagel's record actually is. freshman senator and deputy gum shoe ted cruz looked for needles in a haystack, parsing fragments of hagel's quotes circa 2006. >> in a speech on the floor of the senate you referred to israel's military campaign against the terrorist group hezbollah as a "sickening slaughter." now, i would suggest the characterizations. do you think it's right that israel was creating a sickening slaughter as you said on the floor of the senate. >> i think, again, i would want to read all of it, what i said. >> what cruz and his cracker jack detective work did not reveal was the actual substance of hagel's quote, which reads in full. "the sickening slaughter on both sides must end, and it must end now. president bush must call for an immediate cease-fire." this was not the only example of repub

"the sickening slaughter on both sides must end, and it must end now. president bush must call for an immediate cease-fire." this was not the only example of republican sloouting unquestionable leads with even more dubious conclusions. senator kelly ayote was determined show that hagel voted against iranian sanctions even if he did so while supporting harsher sanctions. zifs one of some republican senators who did not want that to go forward. i voted against it in subcommittee, and the reason i did was because the bush administration did not want that bill to

a vote won't appear for at least another week, chuck hagel's fight to become the next defense secretary should end in confirmation. senator john mccain, a vocal hagel critic says they've had their say and republicans shouldn't hold things up any longer. >> we will have a vote when we get back and i am confident that senator hagel will probably have the votes necessary to be confirmed as the secretary of defense. we have an obligation of advice and consent. i don't intend to give those up when other senators continue to have reasonable questions, and i mean reasonable. >> you're not a yes vote for your old friend? >> no. i don't believe he is qualified. i don't believe that we should hold up his nomination any further. >> coming up, we'll discuss chuck haggle's nomination with someone that's been through the process, former energy secretary bill richardson that just got back from a trip to north korea. we'll be right back. >>> the united nations security council is meeting to talk about north korea and what to do after the country carried out the third underground nurk lar guest. let me
speech last night, members of congress were locked in a bitter fight over the nomination of chuck hagel as the next secretary of defense. in a sharply divided 14-11 vote, the armed services committee sent hagel's nomination to the senate floor but only after hours of intense debate. >> we saw, with his nomination, something truly extraordinary, which is the government of iran formally and publicly praising the nomination of a defense secretary. i would suggest to you that to my knowledge, that is unprecedented to see a foreign nation like iran publicly celebrating a nomination. >> i want to put on the record that this senator feels like that senator cruz has gone over the line. he basically has impugned the patriotism of the nominee in your conclusions, which you are entitled to come to, about him, in essence, about being cozy with iran. >> my friend, senator nelson, i wrote down the words, criticizing our senator there for implying that chuck hagel was cozy with terrorist-type countries, referring to iran. i'd say he's endorsed by them. you can't get any doze zier than that. >> i've go
. >> chuck hagel, they have the 60 votes, but we're not really ready to have a vote yet. we're going to wait a few days. >> those are atmospheres. when it comes to the economics they're going to have to deliver something. mid elections we knew people could come from out of nowhere. once you have a do-nothing congress citizens think if you're not doing anything, i can go there and not do something too. if they don't do something they'll be fired and likely primaries in some of those seats. that's how we won some of those seats. they will have to do something. the revenue stuff they can get done. they can solve a problem and avoid the sequester taking the deal from the president numbers from summon simpson-bowles. i think you'll see help for homeowners because so many districts are underwater. michael: you think they're going to get the $9 minimum wage? >> they'll attach it to something bigger and we'll make it too hot to handle for them. the speaker is wrongly advised. michael: right. >> because the information they gave him today was that it hurts jobs, but that's actually not true. michael:
a week delay and probably going to be confirmed. >> senator hagel supported barack obama over john mccain. i think it is very personal with mccain. i think with other republicans, they are looking ahead to the 2014 races and they don't want to be primaried from the right. they have to look tough here. in the end, they are saying he will get through. he will get through without perhaps any republican votes or a handful of republican votes. i don't think that say very good message to send to the rest of the world the politics the republicans are playing in this. mccain, he wants to have it both ways. he wants to say i'll hold him up, but he will get through. he doesn't entirely want his fingerprints on this either. the kind of politics that everybody seems to play is blame-free politics. it is not possible. the public is sitting out there and they will blame everybody in the end. >> eleanor and emily, sit tight. we will learn details about the president's immigration reform. this is from the chief of staff. >> will be prepared and the bipartisan talks on the hill that we're supporting,
to stop chuck hagel from being confirmed as our nation's next defense secretary. no cabinet nominee has ever been filibustered in the history of our country. it takes a majority vote to confirm someone the president wants in his cabinet. no one has ever tried to filibuster that before. it has never happened. even though a bunch of republican senators do not want chuck hagel to be defense secretary, they have insisted they would never filibuster him, because of course that would be unprecedented. you don't filibuster cabinet nominees. john mccain said that. lindsey graham said that. they doan like him, but they would not filibuster him. now they are filibustering him any way. those two senators and james inhofe from oklahoma say they will force a 60-vote super majority threshold for confirming chuck hagel for the first time in america for any cabinet nominee. and that is a filibuster. but they are insisting that nobody call it a filibuster, because, of course, they said they wouldn't do that. they are filibustering a cabinet nominee for the first time in american history after saying the
of -- >> stephanie: he literally said should the president withdraw chuck hagel's nomination? don't you think he should start over? >> no. >> he just went through committee. what are you talking about? >> yes, he should remove anybody that jim inhoff doesn't like. that's essentially what it is. >> here's what jim inhoff -- hagel was endorsed by iran. >> he and cruz both said that yesterday. >> stephanie: he called out cruz for insinuating hagel may have received funds from extreme groups. i think i wrote down the word he was criticizing our senator for implying hagel was cozy with terrorist type countries. i would say he's endorsed by them. you can't get any cozier than that. really? he's a republican! chuck hagel! and yet the president's not doing enough bipartisan outreach. >> chuck hagel is unfortunately does not believe in carpet bombing as a solution to a diplomatic problem. and cruz and inhoff both do because they're big christians, apparently. they believe that the abject is like -- all drone striking single target aside, they believe in wiping out miles and miles of city blocks to get --
in benghazi. >> i don't think we should allow brennan to go forward for the cia directorship, hagel to be confirmed as secretary of defense until the white house gives us an accounting, did the president ever pick up the phone and call anyone in the libyan government to help these folks? what did the president do? yes, i'm going to ask my colleagues just like they did with john bolton, joe biden said, no confirmation without information. no confirmation without information. >> you are saying that you are going to block the nominations -- you're going to block them from coming to a vote until you get an answer? >> yes. >> now, john mccain has already think that he doesn't think republicans ought to filibuster this. what will you do? you're just going to put a hold on it? >> yeah, i'm not filibustering. this is a national security failure of monumental proportions, and i'm not going to stop until we get to the bottom of it. >> first of all, i'm shocked. you know, lindsey graham doesn't usually like getting in front of a camera and going on the sunday talk shows. so i'm shocked that li
president obama's nominee to be the new secretary of defense, chuck hagel. whether or not they filibuster him that. >> don't have the votes, although at least one republican senator is threatening to try a filibuster anyway. senator lindsey graham of south carolina is also now threatening to put a hold on the hagel nomination, even though there is no precedent for that ever. no cabinet nomination has ever been filibustered or held by a senator. while lindsey graham is making the decision as to whether or not he wants to be famous forever for doing something nobody else has ever done in the history of the senate in order to block chuck hagel, the current defense secretary leon panetta is on his way out. they gave mr. panetta his sendoff on saturday, though it looks like he'll probably be in charge for another week or so. his time has been a period of lasting change for the u.s. military. after the end of the iraq war, he has overseen the beginning of the end of america's longest war ever in afghanistan. the clinton era policy of "don't ask, don't tell" ended under leon panetta's watch, at
stuff up. mcfarland warns time not on chuck hagel's side. good to see you, explain. >> he has two weeks where he's going to twist in the wind and his opponents will find out every dumb thing he's ever said. every speech he's ever made. they'll find out how many overdo library books he had. they'll try to paint the picture of a unqualified man to be secretary of defense. >> i think when there's something like this and it drags on, whether it ultimately passes, and john mccain was here saying he thinks we would be approved. he wouldn't vote for him but he would be approved. the upshot being that what happens is most nominees withdraw. they say it's not worth it and to save further embarssment they go quietly into the night, would he? >> one of two things, either he'll withdraw -- maybe the white house says this is also a distraction from the president's mission. we think it's a good idea if you withdraw. if he does, there are two candidates behind him. number two at the defense department, ash carter and michelle flowknow. both very well respected. say he does get confirmed. he's a weak s
. >>> chuck hagel's nomination is being voted on today. the former senator from nebraska has been criticized by members of his own republican part for comments on israel and iran. if the committee approved hagel, his nomination would get a full senate vote or would need it. so how long has it been since you connected your credit report a while for me. >> i did mine a couple of weeks ago and found a mistake. something you might want to do to make sure your report is right. the federal trade commission says about 25% of consumers have an error in one of their credit reports. major credit agencies are not conducting investigations that are required. >> federal law says that if you believe that there is a mistake, they have an obligation to do a reasonable investigation. >> only about 20% of americans check their credit reports for errors. one site where you can do it for free annualcreditreport.com. i found a mistake but it takes a long time to fix >>> coming up, the warriors have something new up their sleeves. >> plus an acrobatic dunk. a mid

got to tell you, it's, many, many, many years ago. >> quickly, chuck hagel, a vote of his nomination postponed this week. senate republicans saying they need more time, and more financial information. they said that the gop action was unprecedented saying that in part, the committee cannot have two different sets of financial disclosing standard force one nominee and then one for senator hagel and one for other nominees. what is going on with the hagel nomination? >> if it sounds like a jury asking for more information for the judge after it's sequestee- after it's sequestered to make a decision. that is what it is. they are acting exactly like a jury. this is a great deal of political theater. i heard from a number of people who think, fairly certain that hagel has enough votes to get confirmed. >> yeah. >> but it's not a sure thing and especially since his weak performance in front of the committee last week. i think they will make it as difficult for him as they can. >> last question, president obama, among those honoring leon panetta yesterday in an armed forces tribute. what is

. there are not a lot of people that want to do anything. that is what chuck hagel has in common, you could be the most conservative senator, john mccain's pick for the cabinet. as soon as you get a little bit of obama on you they can't work with you. and it is their problem, a lot of us have to deal with it but it is fundamentally a failure of the republican party and it is why they're going to continue to lose elections in and perhaps past the obama era. >> paul ryan wanted a piece of this anti-immigration obama stuff, so let's listen to him. >> leaking it out does set things in the wrong direction. the things we have to ask ourselves, particularly with the white house is president obama looking for a bipartisan law? and without addressing future flow, by giving advantage who cut in front of line for immigrants who came here legally, not dealing with border security adequately, that tells us he is looking for a bipartisan advantage, and not a solution. >> steve, it tells us it is not actually a complete legislative proposal. >> it is a starting point, and again, one of the republican's favorite lines
